“According to the Boston Public Health Commission, there are 86 active licensed tattoo artists in Boston alone, with more in neighboring cities — and for many of them, tattooing is just where their art begins. Some double as painters or illustrators, and a growing number of tattoo artists have formal artistic training. At Massachusetts College of Art and Design, for instance, around 5-10 percent of illustration majors are considering tattoo-related art careers, an uptick from a decade ago, said Margot Zurakowska, chair of MassArt’s illustration department.”
